Globalization at a crossroads( Visual )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To some, the term 'globalization' means ruthless exploitation by corporations; to others, it means bringing economic development to all the peoples of the world. This program explains key principles at the core of global economics and takes a historical look at their effects, focusing on market liberalization and the failed 'East Asian miracle'; privatization of basic resources in Bolivia and the severe backlash against it; Russia's rapid transition to capitalism and the oligarchism and kleptocracy that came to characterize it; and China's incremental implementation of capitalism under communism. The video also takes stock of the seismic shift in the U.S. economy and its probable effect on the rest of the world."--Container
The nervous system and the senses by Viewtech( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program discusses the development, organization, and functions of the nervous system and the input organs that stimulate it. Beginning with an introductory overview of neural anatomy, the video outlines the organization of the central and peripheral nervous systems and the processes of sensation, transduction, and perception. In addition, the senses of vision, hearing, taste, smell, and equilibrium are analyzed, as well as sensitivities to temperature, pressure, and pain; bodily movement via the somatic neurons is illustrated; and the neural mechanics of sleep and wakefulness are considered
Citizenship and civic responsibilities( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is American citizenship all about personal freedom and the rights of the individual? Or should the concept of the "good citizen" take precedence, underscoring the duties and contributions an individual owes to society? Where does immigration fit in? This program helps students sift through various meanings of American citizenship and the historical forces that have shaped it. With energetic visuals, expert interviews, and examples from past political struggles, the video explores citizen rights as given in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights; iterations of federal immigration law through the years; the history of Ellis Island as a conduit into citizenship; civic responsibilities and "active citizenship"; civil liberties and their importance; equal protection under the law; and more
The immune system by Horst Günter Koch( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This program examines how the human immune system defends the body against disease-causing invaders ;and how in some cases its antigen-fighting capabilities can be turned against the bodily cells it protects. Topics include the elements of the immune system, passive barrier defenses and nonspecific reactive responses, the humoral immune response and its associated antibodies, and the process of cell-mediated immunity. The program also addresses the importance of vaccines, the mechanics of allergies and autoimmune diseases, and advances in the field of immunology."--Publisher
The Periodic table( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much more than a list of elements, the periodic table is a snapshot of how matter is organized on Earth and throughout the universe. Divided into five sections, this program looks at the history and components of the periodic table: The History of the Periodic Table (from the atomos of Democritus to the atoms of Mendeleev); Metals (how to read the periodic table, transition metals, alkali metals, alkaline earth metals); Lanthanides, Actinides, and Transuranium Elements (properties of lanthanides and actinides, transuranium and transfermium elements); The BCNOs (properties of metalloids, other metals, and nonmetals); and Halogens and Noble Gases (properties and applications of halogens and noble gases)

The skeletal and muscular systems by Julie Landgraf. Blanton, John R. Miller, Mark F. Bishare, Joseph. Scott, Geoff. Davis, G. W Johnson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program deconstructs the human skeletal and muscular systems, two interdependent assemblies that endow the body with structure and movement. Beginning with an introductory overview, the video identifies the body's bones by dividing the skeleton into its axial and appendicular components, analyzes bone composition, describes the process of bone repair, and categorizes bone and joint types. The program then shifts focus to the skeletal muscular system-a detailed study of muscle cells, fibers, bundles, and connective tissue. The ATP-fueled process of muscle contraction is addressed as well
Chemical reactions( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do fireworks, a fried egg, and a rusting truck have in common? They all involve chemical reactions. This program illustrates the mechanics of chemical reactions in five sections: Chemical Reactions (reactants and products, state changes, diatomic elements and molecules, Law of Conservation of Mass); Chemical Bonding (Octet Rule, ionic and covalent bonds); Types of Chemical Reactions (synthesis and decomposition reactions, single and double displacement reactions, acid/base reactions, exothermic and endothermic reactions); Reaction Rates (moles, kinetic energy, solutes and solvents, catalysts, activators and inhibitors, enzymes); and Reactions All Around Us (photosynthesis and chemosynthesis, autotrophs and photoautotrophs, bioluminescence)
Cells, tissues, and skin by Viewtech Educational Media( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an introductory segment on cell characteristics, this program discusses the way human body cells function and combine into the structures that sustain life. Topics include membrane permeability and the processes of passive and active transport; cytoplasm, with its cytosol, organelles, and inclusions; the constituent parts of the nucleus and the stages and processes of the cell cycle; the four basic tissue types; and the skin, the body's largest organ
Digestion and nutrition by Viewtech( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program examines the chemical structure of food and the human body's ability to convert food into fuel and raw materials. Major and minor nutrients are defined, catabolism and anabolism are contrasted, and the function of the digestive tract at the cellular level is scrutinized. The sequence of physical and chemical processes that facilitate digestion is also illustrated, spotlighting each constituent anatomical system: mouth/esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. A segment on healthier eating concludes the program

Targeting Terror( Visual )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The war on terror requires greater cooperation among countries and a deeper understanding of terrorism's causes and manifestations. This program spotlights five nations caught in the crosshairs to examine regional history, terror-related issues, and counterterrorism actions: the U.S., post-9/11, where captured international terrorists have been handled by military rather than civilian courts; the U.K., where fighting the IRA has ultimately conferred little advantage to the country in its battle against the Islamic extremists in its midst; Germany and Japan, whose counterterrorism efforts are constitutionally constrained by their history as aggressors in World War II; and Columbia, a land of narcoterrorism where extradition to America has been the government's key anti-terror weapon"--Container
Fundamentalist Fervor( Visual )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Religious fundamentalism underpins some of the world's most intractable political problems as members of fundamentalist groups seek to influence both domestic and international policy.
